Also, I think the API calls are the core of the whole thing and I would 
never expect XML API calls to be collected under the term "web site" 
(which I always read as being an user-facing component).

OSM can, and should, work without a web site. Well, apart from the fact 
that you need one to sign up.

But after using the misnomer "rails port" for years, I don't mind using 
the misnomer "OSM website" for another few years and maybe we can find 
something right later.
